:Since the numbers of the motorways are different in Great Britian (the big "island" with England, Scotland and Wales) and Northern Ireland (part of the island of Ireland)<small>([https://secure.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/wiki/List_of_motorways_in_the_United_Kingdom see wikipedia])</small>, the first of your alternatives seems to be the most reasonable. For example, there are at least two M1 motorways in the UK, one in Northern Ireland and one in England (part of GB).
:We might argue about whether we should put the respective constituent countries for the roads in Great Britian (e.g. ''M1 (England)'' or ''M8 (Scotland)'') since the motorways seem to get new numbers when they cross one of these borders, but I think it's not necessary, ''GB'' is shorter and leads to less confusion. I'm still confused about names like ''A1(M)'', though. What do you or others think? --[[User:Kb|Kb]] 01:09, 4 October 2011 (CEST)
: In most cases, we just try to use the same conventions as wikipedia does, because they are usually pretty consistent and logical, I think. In this case, I don't really understand them though, I'd say [[M1 (GB)]], [[M1 (Ireland)]] and [[M1 (Northern Ireland)]] are good choices. --[[User:MrTweek|MrTweek]] 12:38, 4 October 2011 (CEST)
